**Definitions:**

**Newton** (abbreviation: **N**): is the International System of Units (SI) derived unit of force. It is named after Isaac Newton in recognition of his work on classical mechanics, specifically Newton's second law of motion. One newton is the force needed to accelerate one kilogram of mass at the rate of one metre per second squared in direction of the applied force.

**Gram** (abbreviation: **gm**): is a SI (metric) system unit of mass. Where, at the temperature of melting ice, it is the absolute weight of a volume equal to the hundredth part of a metre cube of pure water.

## How to Convert Newtons to Grams

*Example: How many grams are equivalent to 18.41 newtons?*

As;

1 newtons = 101.97162129779 grams

18.41 newtons = Y grams

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 18.41 times 101.97162129779 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 18.41 * 101.97162129779 / 1 = 1877.2975480924 grams

Answer is: 1877.2975480924 grams are equivalent to 18.41 newtons.
